Thorp Woman Dies of Injuries Suffered in Crash

A young, new mother who was in a crash last week has died from her injuries.

Rae Lynn Burrington of Thorp, who would have turned 23 Sunday, died Friday at Luther Hospital in Eau Claire.

Burrington's two week old daughter, Marie Field, was in the vehicle at the time of the crash on Highway 29.

According to a family friend, the baby was released from the hospital in Marshfield on Saturday with scrapes.

The accident happened Wednesday on Highway 29 near Cadott when Burrington's vehicle hit a guardrail and then a bridge pillar.

Visitation will be held Tuesday from 4p.m. to 8 p.m. at Thorp Funeral Home, with funeral services on Wednesday in Stanley.

Instead of flowers, the family asks that memorials be given to the Marie Annette Field Fund
